Amelia's Carriage Ride in the Snow!

Christmas Calendar Inspired by Tasha Tudor
Amelia loves to ride about the Corgyncombe acreage in her carriage pulled by her devoted horse Molly! The landscape is covered with a fresh layer of snow! This morning Amelia is looking for greens to make wreaths and swags for the festive Christmastide celebration.




Tasha Tudor's Advent Calendars and delightful dolls inspired Diane and Sarah to create their own Christmas Calendar.

Diane and Sarah's 4th Annual Calendar to Count "The Days Until Christmas: Amelia's Favorite Things" can be found by clicking here:

"The Days Until Christmas: Amelia's Favorite Things"

The link takes you to our web site "Our Favorite Things" where there is a special page with our Calendar with 25 round red windows covered with holly until the appointed day. Sometime during each day the window will change to the photograph of the day. The windows of the day are done alphabetically, going from A to Z and feature the dolls and their animals friends at Corgyncombe as they celebrate Christmastide joy!

Amelia's carriage reminds The Corgyncombe Courant of the illustrations by Tasha Tudor of dolls enjoying carriage rides in "A is for Annabelle" and "The Night Before Christmas". In "Increase Rabbit" illustrated by Tasha Tudor, the bunny is also seen riding in the carriage.

Diane's great great grandmum Celestia driving her horse Molly. Although Celestia lived well into the age of the "autymobile" she still preferred always to travel by horse and buggy.




Sweet Molly lived for years and was a devoted, well loved horse. Diane's Mum remembers sitting on the porch looking down the road waiting for her great grandmum and Molly to come into view...
